3 Ways to Thank Yourself

To all the women out there.  You’re tired, you’re hitting a certain age, you’re worn out, you’re worried.  You’re stressing, you’re overworked, you feel like your kids don’t appreciate you, maybe your partner just doesn’t “get it.”  Not getting anywhere in your career, or you feel completely lost on what to do with your life still.  Going through a separation or divorce, you’re taking care of aging parents, your teenagers want you to drop dead.  Does any of this sound familiar?

Who is this Person? Self Love & Dating

  A few weeks after I locked the door on my husband for the last time, I went out with friends to a bar. After twelve years in a relationship, I had no intention of dating anyone for a very long time.  I wanted only a nice night out, away from all the worries of filing for divorce and the hard conversations I knew were coming.

Fall Self Care List

For many falls is simply the best time of the year. The world seems to transform into a crisp colorful scene in a romance novel. Or a horror flick. Whatever tickles your fancy. The business of summer fun starts to dwindle and the coziness of a slower season starts to set in. There is a certain amount of romance that is associated with Fall. Pink cheeks and red noses.
